Over 2 miles out of his natural habitat, a 100-150 pound mountain lion was found on Whipple Avenue in Redwood City on Tuesday, Mar. 29.

Officers fired a tranquilizer dart at the mountain lion, but were unsure if they had hit it or not because he had taken off running immediately after the dart was shot.

Neighbors and officers were then uneasy. The situation could have taken a downward spiral because they could have been dealing with an angry, injured wild animal.

At 11:15 a.m. the effort to capture the animal ended. The mountain lion was shot down between two fences at 2515 Whipple Avenue.

Officials still are not sure what lured the animal out of its natural habitat, but it did not appear to be suffering from any illness.
